Lapland is a land of opposites: the alteration of light and dark and vast fells represent the versatility of the local culture. Lapland lives and breathes old legends and amazing history. You can feel the contrast of east and west as well as the nearness of the Arctic Ocean. Lapland is a land where people are constantly in touch with arctic nature. This versatility is wonderfully present in the paintings of Reidar Särestöniemi, an artist from Kittilä. In his paintings Särestöniemi portrayed the people and Lapland in all their colourful glory. The northern culture is still very much about a conversation between people and nature. In Lapland, nature takes the leading role. Discover all that Lapland’s culture offers with Polar Star Travel.
